The food choices are limited - but fantastic! Service is good. I appreciate that it is a wine estate - but really consider carrying at least one craft beer and Windhoek light. Long lazy afternoon - burger, gnocchi, and beef Wellington was fantastic. The deserts are heavenly!

We had a great lunch and speaker in the private space at Eikendal. JC was so easy to work with and answered my frequent emails with updates/changes promptly. The food was fantastic and the setting great!

This estate has fast become one of my favourite places to while away a sunny afternoon in Cape Town. We discovered it when I bought a voucher for their wine and chocolate pairing, after which we ended up staying for lunch and were SO glad we did... the pork belly was delicious, tender and tasty with crispy crackling to finish off the dish. We liked it so much we went back a month later and sat on their glorious lawns overlooking a dam. Such a gorgeous setting to enjoy a sumptuous meal and a glass of their stunningly palate pleasing wines in. So much so, that we will be dining there again this weekend.

Mark continually dishes up deliciously cooked and appetisingly presented food. A lovely and relaxing venue just off the busy R44. Whether you desire hearty breakfast; lunch or a function venue - they have surpassed expectations.

When we are bored and do not know what to do then we know it is time to visit one of our favourite spots - Eikendal.

Under the oak trees on the grass if it is fully booked or at a table if you have made a reservation or were lucky to get one without booking in advance, we relax and enjoy the scenery.

Sometimes we just go there for a glass of wine and relax and on Sundays, weather permitting, we listen to live music by a variation of artists that simply add another dimension to the atmosphere.

The food is excellent and is served in a surprising manner - sometimes in normal plates, sometime on a wooden cutting board and sometimes on a board made from parts of old wine barrels. Outstanding quality and interesting combinations. It is a treat for your taste buds.

Prices is very reasonable for the quality.

The most surprising thing is how quickly the waiters get to know you. It was just on our second visit when the waiter came up to us and mentioned that we sat at a different table the previous time, remembered that there was someone else with us and also remembered that we only had wine and even remembered what wine we had. The request was "The same wine as last time or would you like to try something else".

Will always go back and will always recommend this place
